History Highlights of the Highlander

The Toyota Highlander debuted on the North American market in 2001. This car-based crossover was an instant success among the crossover-loving public. In fact, the Highlander was Toyota’s top seller until the RAV4 usurped it a few years later. People particularly praised the Highlander for its roomy interior and its huge array of highly desirable standard and available features.

A redesign in 2008 occurred around the time the crossover market was picking up momentum, and the Highlander’s sales skyrocketed. Changes for this generation included a standard V6 engine, a larger third-row seat, and more interior space.

In 2015, the Highlander’s third generation kicked off and has continued to update, upgrade, and refresh in the years that followed. In an automotive segment that doesn’t seem to be waning, the Highlander is likely to be a strong seller for generations to come.
